Carbohydrates: The Misunderstood Macro

Are Carbs the Bad Guy"
Let’s admit it, carbs have gotten a bad reputation over the last few years.  But are they really that bad"  In fact, no!  Carbohydrates are an important macronutrient in the body.  They provide you with the fuel you need to have a fabulous day.  The problem we face is not carbohydrates but more HOW carbohydrates have been manipulated by the food industry.
First, let’s do a quick refresh on what exactly these macronutrients are.
